Spilled milk Cleaned it up but now when I try to print paper goes in crooked and jams -

Examine the paper guides looking a any paper jam and remove.

Paper jams are sometimes difficult to remove without disassembling
the printer.
However you could try using card stock as it is firmer and may push the paper jam from the printer, if this fails call one of your computer literate family or friends to help. As most printers are not to expensive, I will not suggest any repair shops. The cost of a printer is in most cases less than the the cost of the replacement ink cartridges.

Where and How to Buy Cheap Ink

The aftermarket for printer ink can be a tricky place to shop. Third-party cartridges cost less than the manufacturers' brands--which is why people buy them. But it can be a lot harder to tell whether a third-party vendor sells high-quality ink products.
One time-tested method is to shop at an established retailer (online or brick-and-mortar) that guarantees the quality of its products. Obvious examples include office supply chains such as 123Inkjets, Cartridge World, Office Depot, Office Max, and Staples, all of which carry third-party ink cartridges.
But finding third-party ink for your specific printer model can be a challenge, particularly if your unit is very new, very old, or not very popular. Before driving around town to find the right cartridge, do a little homework online. At today's insane gas prices, you could end up spending $20 on fuel just to save $10 on an ink cartridge.
Like the online arms of other major retailers, has an Ink & Toner Finder. Click the link for to find a decent assortment of third-party supplies for Brother, Canon, and Lexmark printers. If you find compatible ink, you can buy it online or check with your local outlet to see whether it has the product in stock.
If you're dealing with a vendor that you haven't used before, ask questions. A reputable online ink retailer will provide names and contact information for the ink manufacturers that it buys its supplies from.
When shopping for remanufactured cartridges, ask the third-party supplier how thoroughly it inspects used cartridges before refilling them. "Do they look for cracks? Do they test the electrical characteristics of the cartridge? A cartridge can look fine but have a broken electrical component, and then it won't work," says Tricia Judge of the International Imaging Technology Council. The vendor should also test the cartridge after the refill, Judge adds.
For our latest in-depth coverage of the pros and cons of printer manufacturers' inks versus third-party inks, see our feature article, "Cheap Ink: Will It Cost You?" and the related slide show, "Head-to-Head: Printer Manufacturers' Ink vs. Cheap Third-Party Ink." For additional advice on reducing the cost of running your inkjet printer, see "The Cheapskate's Guide to Printing," "Save Money on Inkjet Printer Ink," and "How to Spend Less on Printing and Get Better Results." Our digital photography expert, Dave Johnson, has written helpful articles on photo print longevity ("Digital Focus: Make Your Photo Prints Last") and printer paper ("The Paper Chase: Pick the Perfect Paper for Your Printer"). And finally an earlier three-part PC World series on the issues of counterfeit name-brand inks ("Bogus Ink Stink"), third-party ink quality("Cheap Ink Probed"), and high ink-cartridge prices ("Why Do Ink Cartridges Cost So Much?") provides valuable historical background and additional test results for various ink cartridges.

I can't seem to find any ink or paper for the printer, does anyone know where l can get some? Or an alternative that is compatible?

ordinary printers use 80 grms paper normally in a4 size which is available in any supermarket, office supplies shops
large size papers b c or plan size papers are only available from office supply shops or retailers who sell your product

I don't know how to refill?

Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.

1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover.
2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle.
3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta.
4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole.
5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel.
6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.

Printer won't work, paper jam.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

My C46 has been spoiled by someone who can get into my home. It will not allow the paper to go through It is grabbed on the right and goes to the left. I've tried finding something to change about it. ...

Typically there is a small bit of paper that is stuck somewhere in the paper path. It is now probably black with ink and will be hard to see. Usually running some card stock through the printer will clear it. But if necessary, manually push some thin plastic (maybe from some clothes packages) back and forth through the paper path, especially at the edges to try and dislodge the offending clog.

What you don't see is that when you close the cover the ink cartridge moves back and forth, grabbing the edge of the paper on the right and pushing it to the left. There may also be a piece of paper stuck on the ink cartridge head or carriage. Remove the ink cartridge, inspect the head and place where it moves to see if there isn't a bit of paper stuck there (again, will be saturated with ink). Use same process to remove. Try not to use a knife or other sharp object as it might damage the printer.

Printing on to black paper

I'm sorry, but there is no white ink in the cartridges in this printer, and there are no printers I know of by any manufacturer that have white ink to do what you're wanting to do.

All I can suggest is these two things:
  1. Go to a local printing shop and see if they can do this for you. I used to work at an Insty-Prints and they could do thermographed ink (which means the ink is slightly raised, like you see on some business cards), and probably have white or light grey ink. They may be able to do this for you.
  2. Alternatively, you can print it on your printer, but you'll have to use white card stock and have the printer print all the black (and leave the white areas white). This will use a lot of black ink so if you have a lot of these to print, it might actually be easier and cheaper (considering the cost of ink) to again go to a print shop in your area.

Not getting ink from cartridge to paper, i believe my gap settings are messed up.

A few possibilities here: One, is your ribbon cartridge dried out (essentially out of ink)? Dot Matrix printers aren't near as common now, and if your cartridge has been in the retailer's stock for years, then it could indeed be dried out. Another, the ribbon isn't being advanced, or spooled. The ribbon is spooled as the head carriage moves back and forth. If it isn't being spooled, the ink in the spot over the printhead will be quickly depleted. A no-spooling condition is usually caused by a problem in the cartridge itself. Also, make sure the cartridge is properly seated in the holder. If it isn't, the drive spindle isn't fitting up into the cartridge properly, and might not actually drive the mechanism inside the cartridge. Lastly, if your cartridge is dry, they can be reinked if you can find someone with the reinker to do it. I once did ribbon reinking with a Macinker as a side business, and someone in your area might have one of those rigs. Otherwise, just buy a new cartridge, and hopefully it will be reasonably fresh, with good ink.
